Welcome to the Online Accidental Counsellor short course, a brief 80 minute overview of the Accidental Counsellor Training I created back in 2008.
The goal of this short course is to help you connect and influence the people you support without burning out through the Accidental Counsellor Model.
This short course is an overview of 3 core areas:
1) Self Care and Wellbeing so we are not overcome by the emotional distress of others. This also includes appropriate referral.
2) Connection so we are able to validate and acknowledge the person so they feel heard and understood.
3) Influence so we can ask appropriate “solution focused questions” if appropriate rather than giving unsolicited advice.
